I wouldn't even consider the Raystorm since it's 10 to 15€ more expensive than the EKs.
That 7970 "ghetto mod" is hilarious but I'm not that desperate and would get either Zalman or AlphaCool heatsinks (or even both).
I've seen some 20€ blocks, are those any good ? I'm supposing they work or else they wouldn't sell at all but maybe they were designed for older GPUs and wouldn't work so well with the more recent ones. They're probably way more restrictive than the 50€ blocks too.

If you are gonna get rid of your 560 then just do that, and dont waste time and money on a GPU block. Some ear plugs might be better in the short term. Get the card you want and cool that sucker with a nice block.

BEST USE OF TUBING EVER!!!

seriously, Universal blocks need some more love. like, some of those non-ref cards (like the few recent ASUS DCUII V2 cards or some of those Sapphire new cards) can only have universal blocks (since its highly unlikely that EK or someone would release a full cover for it). also, we need backplates even for universals!!! (e.g. a backplate for 7970 would work with universal)

I've only got about 100€ right now and no income. I'll have an extra 150/200€ for Christmas. I'll sell my 560 Ti 60-80€ (they usually go for 100+ €). So that'll be a total of 310€. I'll probably get a 7870 and an EK CSQ full cover plexi bloc (but I think they look horrible). I don't really want to do that actually xD. So no, I won't. I'll wait and see what EK are going to make for those who don't like CSQ and the cloudy plexi. I might even wait for the 8*** and GTX 7** cards.

No matter what I still want to add my current GPU to the loop asap.

Even I'm not a fan of the CSQ on the GPU cards, but if you really want to add it to the loop then the universal block sounds like the right way.

I went with the Heatkiller "Hole" edition for my block:

DWood here on OCN can make you a backplate for any card you have - inexpensive too.

What full cover GPU block would you recommend for the GTX 670 Gigabyte Windforce 3X edition? I have seen that some blocks were obstructing the 6 pin power connector.
